Lesson 950 – Born Behind Bars

By Wendythomas @wendyenthomas

I’m getting to the end of my Poultry Congress photos but I do have a few left that I wanted to share (and thanks for all the feedback on how you appreciate seeing the different kinds of chickens – this is nothing, if you are intrigued by these photos then make it a point to visit your nearest Poultry Congress, you won’t be disappointed.)

When Chickens are kept in cages for hours at a time, the inevitable sometimes happens.


Try as you might, (and I know from experience with my 6 kids) when you’ve got to push, you’ve got to push. Ain’t nothing gonna stop that train once it’s left the station.


But even in a crowded cage, even in a noisy hall filled with thousands of squawking birds, the end product, which is birth, is still awe-inspiring and just as beautiful as always.
